In what we thought would be a temporary transition from starting in a Palm Beach, Florida studio where Ashley had already lived, with Martin later moving in from Miami, ultimately grew into our nest. Before the rite of passage of blessings can come into fruition, structure, and organization in a tiny living space must be implemented and practiced daily. When there are no walls or a door to your bathroom, things get real —real quick. You find out what is important and what has to go. At the end of the day, we learn a little more about each other daily and our love strengthens within the four walls. Together, we gathered our top tips for what made our nest work and flourish.

Utilizing a minimalistic approach in designing an atmosphere to fit all of our needs and comfort. You’ll learn how we fit an office desk, a queen bed, a fifty-five-inch flat screen, a portable dual closet, two extra small fridges, kitchen accessories, creative storage areas and so much more. You’ll also see our survival skills in honest budgeting, giving away the old when you buy the new, alternatives to expensive gym workouts, keeping rituals, entertaining guests, action dream boards, life lessons with saying ‘nev¬ers’ and even dealing with just pooping with no door.
